HOW DID YOU GET STARTED MODELING?
I had a friend in kindergarten who would bring in her tear sheets from toys r us and other places for show and tell. I thought it was sooooo cool so after a lot of begging my parents they helped me get started. I eventually found a manager and started acting and modeling at age 8.
WHAT EXCITES YOU ABOUT MODELING?
I love always working in a different place, with different people, doing different things, getting to travel, having a flexible schedule and ultimately being my own boss. I also LOVE all the interesting clothes, makeup, and hairstyles I get to try out!
WHAT ARE YOUR FAVORITE TYPES OF OUTFITS TO MODEL IN?
I LOVE vintage!!
WHAT ARE YOUR LEAST FAVORITES?
Once for a catalog I had to shoot in a pink suede jacket that had pink sequins all over it. SO ugly!! I also don't really like modeling any leather/other animal products, I'm vegan and I know its part of the job but I don't love it...
WHAT KIND OF SHOOTS WOULD YOU LIKE TO WORK ON IN THE FUTURE?
I already feel so lucky with the work I've done! I just want to keep doing more of everything! More catalogs, more fetish, more print ads, I love anything with interesting wardrobe and locations.
ARE THERE ANY OTHER CREATIVE MEDIUMS YOU WORK IN?
I also work in film and TV as an actress, and do hair and makeup on the side.
WHAT KIND OF MUSIC DO YOU LIKE?
Almost everything!! I love goth, metal, punk, ska, reggae, classic rock, opera, classical, hiphop, some rap, I just can't stand country. I'm also a big Nsync fan lol
WHAT DO YOU LIKE TO DO FOR FUN?
So many things! I LOVE to travel! I love anything outdoors and adventurous, hiking, swimming, the beach, I like to read, just exploring wherever I am, I like trying new bars, love going to art galleries, concerts, I want to start rock climbing and skydiving. I've done both before but I'd love to do it on a regular basis!
